I'm suffering really badly from Shin Splints...I obviously can't rest, any other advice?!

As shin splints are generally an overuse injury, the first step should always be to reduce both the volume and intensity of your training. You can supplement this training reduction with low impact cross training activities such as swimming or cycling to maintain your cardiovascular fitness.

It's better to take a couple of weeks off from training (even in the lead up to an event) than to risk worsening the injury and putting yourself out of action completely. In the meantime you can reduce inflammation by icing the affected area, and it's always a good idea to try some light stretches and foam rolling if you haven't already.

The doctor told me I have bursitis of the gluteus and said it would clear up in a couple of weeks. I am frustrated because I can not run. Is there anything in the meantime to speed up the recovery, it is nearly two weeks with the injury but no improvement.

Although I train using SIS supplement in my drink, I regularly suffer from cramp. I've had negative blood test results for sodium and magnesium levels, do you have any further suggestions to prevent cramp?
